"Bought this car new and at 231,000 miles I can say without a doubt it's one of the best cars you can buy period. Planning to buy another one when this quits in another 10 or 15 years! If you're even slightly considering it, buy it. Immediately."

"I've had my 1999 Jetta for 8 yrs now (bought new) and overall, I cannot recommend it. The AC went in the first year. I've replaced the oxygen sensor so many times I think I own stock in VW. Many parts are VW only. I've never had the cruise control work...ever. I had the engine rebuilt last yr because it used all the oil up in 3000 miles. They're not the value and quality that Vdubs once were sadly. I'm going back to Honda or Toyota--hands down. My friends who have a Jetta are on the same bandwagon."

Nice style, great mileage, quite reliable

"I bought this car when it was 3 years old. Now, some 6 years later the only real problems I've had with it are the cruise control & window motors breaking. (I replaced 1/year for the first 4 years I owned the car.) Other than that everything has been great: excellent mileage, good intelligent design & handling, huge trunk. I guess that me maintaining the car well has paid off..."

perfect
